Q3 W2 Feb 1-Feb 5 Algebra 1

TeacherStephanie Durrance
Subject AreaAlgebra 1 Honors
Grade Level7th/8th
Week #2
Unit of InstructionUNIT 7: Polynomial Functions
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.A-APR.1.1: Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.

MAFS.912.F-BF.1.1b.c: Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• apply arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication of polynomials and functions with integral coefficients and explain the properties used. • explain closure and understand that adding, subtracting, or multiplying two polynomials always produces a polynomial

• write a function that combines functions using arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, and multiplication) and relate the result to the context of the problem. • write a function to model a real-world context by composing functions and the information within the context. • explain process of composition
